As a child, both of my parents have been dedicated field workers. At the age of 12, I also contributed my part to my family's low income and became a field worker. My summer vacations consisted of a 10-hour grape picking shift. From 5 am to 3 pm. Without my financial contribution, I and my family would simply not have enough money to support ourselves. Since day one, we've been making ends meet. But it's time for a change. I'm currently enrolled in Fresno State University and am the first person in my entire family to attend college. Fortunately for me, mathematics seems to be a natural gift of mine. I plan to exceed the expectations of my parents and strive to accomplish my goals of owning my own business.
